Earthquake: Earthquake of 3.5 magnitude shook Chamba-Kangra

Baijnath: The earthquake again affected Kangra and Chamba districts on Friday morning. However, due to the low intensity of the earthquake, most people could not feel it. But the tremors were felt at many places. According to the Indian Meteorological Department, the epicenter of the earthquake was reported at 7.46 am. Its intensity is measured at 3.5 on the Richter scale. The epicenter of the earthquake was reported at Saluni in Chamba district.

Kangra and Chamba districts fall in Zone 5 from the point of view of earthquake. There have been a series of earthquakes over the years. Which is pointing to devastation somewhere. However, seismologists deny this. Seismologists believe that the Earth’s energy comes from small earthquakes. This greatly reduces the chances of a major earthquake. But one more thing has been recorded here that the underground movement in the upper area of ​​Shahpur has intensified for some time. The entire range has also been hit by earthquakes repeatedly over the months. It is to be known that on April 4, 1905, an earthquake of 7.8 magnitude occurred in Kangra district. It wasted the time of 20,000 people and destroyed many villages and cities and temples.
